You don't need the bank account of a Rockefeller to live it up like one. Instead, explore one of the country's greatest free pleasures: the 1,740 acres of dedicated open space of the Rockefeller State Park Preserve. In addition to strolling along the miles of old carriage roads and stone bridges, guests of the park enjoy seasonal bass fishing on the 22 acre lake, gallery, and trying to spot one of the 180 species of birds that call the park home. (And, when your hike is done, you have the perfect excuse for stopping at the Blue Hill cafe and indulging in their famous duck panini.)
